We stayed 4 nights at Windy Kaouki and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff , good food, lovely pool and even a dog to match the one we left at home! Accommodation was spacious and comfortable, but contained no kitchen utensils or china despite having a self catering kitchen . The staff happily supplied us with a pan to... More

Great staff and apartments with nice swimming pool and staff will go out their way to ensure you are having a great time but will leave you to your own if you prefer that! Beach is lovely but very very windy so better to chill by the pool. Off the beaten track. Highly recommended.

Windy Kaouki was the first stop on our Morocco adventure and it was the best welcome we could have asked for. After traveling for about 30 hours it was bliss arriving at the hotel and being welcomed with Mint Tea, an awesome room, beautiful scenery and a quite beach hotel. We had a great dinner at the hotel too. The... More

We were delighted with our stay in Windy Kaouki in August 2011. The service is wonderful, as Mohammed and his team are friendly and eager to please. The food was excellent! Tino's lasagna is THE best in the world, I have never tasted something even remotely similar; and Mohammed's tajines are delicious. The pool is quite small, but impeccably clean,... More

Arrived exhausted from early flight to a welcoming taxi driver (arranged by Tino, the hotel owner) who took us directly and cheaply to the hotel. Arriving was a delight: spacious, cool rooms overlooking the pool and /or the sea, comfortable beds, and lovely bathrooms. Nothing was too much trouble for Tino and his incredible team, from finding ibuprofen, lifts to... More

Beautiful apartments which are spacious and comfortable. The (small) complex is very well designed and features a pool, terrance with sun loungers and grottos, along with a roof terrance complete with a large shady seating area. Sidi Kaouki is run by an Italian guy called Tino who is very friendly and is obviously a man of fine tastes. The apartments... More

I traveled with Mr Aloha69 and I can recommend this hotel especially for wind- and kitesurfers. Windi Kaouki is one of the three places in Marocco, were wind and waves are very reliable. Very classic waves with big swell (wintertime) and strong/powerfull wind (summertime). Sandy beaches and no reef/rocks so easy to go out (compared to Moulay) Hotel is located... More
